This is an installer package for the game Mummy: Tomb of the Pharaoh (1996) which will allow it to be played on modern versions of Windows, with easy to use desktop and/or start menu shortcuts and an uninstall option for quick removal. The manual is also included. DOSBox-staging, DOSBox ECE, and Retroarch are included - any of which can be used, depending on your preference. My own custom shaders and bezel are included for Retroarch.
All emulators are setup with controller support via Antimicro (can be disabled via the launcher), with joystick to emulated mouse input (left stick, right stick, or dpad can be used) as well as a couple additional mappings (based on a 360/XB1 controller):
Left trigger = right-click
Right trigger = left-click
X = Enter
B = Space
Start = ESC
Back+LB = Quit
You can quit the game immediately via numpad * (asterisk) + ESC in Retroarch or Ctrl+F9 in DOSBox.
ASuite is a lightweight, open-source, portable launcher which is included to allow you to choose which emulator to use, some configuration options for each of them, as well as access to the manual and this readme.
I do not recommend installing into your Program Files folder. This can cause write access problems when you need to save your game. C:\Games\Zomb's Lair\Mummy - Tomb of the Pharaoh is the default path, but anywhere other than Program Files/Program Files (x86) is fine.
The included Retroarch shaders "Esper", "Ghost", "Neuromancer", and "Snow Crash" will not work with onboard video - dedicated video hardware is required. If you you do not meet this requirement and have one of these shaders set, it will simply be disabled when playing. All of these are somewhat system intensive. If performance on your computer is poor, simply disable the shader by starting the launcher and selecting the "No shader" option or you can try changing Hard Sync to Off in the Utilities > Retroarch Settings > Performance Settings section of the launcher.
Reshade is also included (disabled by default) which also includes a few of my own custom presets. These will increase hardware requirements as well. If it's been enabled through the launcher, you can enable/disable it in game via the End key and toggle the Reshade UI via the PgDn key - this allows you to change the preset by clicking on the drop-down list in the top left.
Be aware that the combination of the included shaders and Reshade presets require a fast PC. If you combine the two and are getting poor performance / stuttering (or are just experience this regardless of shaders/Reshade) you can try disabling Hard GPU Sync through the launcher. This decreases hardware requirements but increases input latency, which is why it's Hard GPU Sync is on by default.
Zomb's Lair is a passion project dedicated to bringing old classics to a modern audience, while eliminating all of the hurdles that that normally entails.
